I move that 12,035 baht (approx $294.00) be approved for the continuing monthly food program. There will be some variations during the next couple of months as to the number of packets and schools as we relocate to schools that have not yet been served by TLCB: Non Bua Naratchakwai 6 (will remain - extremely poor); Sang Hin School 4 (will be dropping - great improvement)
Nuen Sa At School 4 (will be dropping - great improvement); Nong Kah Ko Koon 7 (new school grades K - 9 almost 300 kids);

Na Sai School 4 (will be dropping - great improvement); BAn Po Wan 4 (New school - will remain); Na Ratchakwai - left this month; Na ratchakwai Noi - left this month.  This program has been one of the most successful. Through it students and staff have been given new hope, thanks to TLCB.
